Commencing 1 July 2014 the Breeders Challenge Owners Bonus Certificates (BCOBC) will increase in value by 20% to $3,000.

The Board of Harness Racing NSW (HRNSW) made the decision at their monthly Meeting on Tuesday.

HRNSW CEO Sam Nati said: "With the APG Sydney Yearling Sale scheduled for this Saturday we felt it was the ideal opportunity to make the announcement.

"The Breeders Challenge is a very important brand for us and we have continued to add layers both to the value and the number of incentives associated with it", he added.

Some of the key inducements for Breeders Challenge eligible and sustained horses include:

· $3,000 Breeders Challenge Owners Bonus Certificates for the first "C" Class win as a 2yo AND 3yo. Any horse that doesn't win a certificate as a 2yo or 3yo is eligible to win one as a 4yo or older (Currently worth $2,500 until 1 July 2014). This is paid to the owner.

· $3,000 Breeders Challenge Nominators (Breeder) Cash Bonus for the first "C" Class win as a 2yo AND 3yo. Any horse that doesn't win a Bonus as a 2yo or 3yo is eligible to win one as a 4yo or older. (This is the first year of the BCNB and applies only to 2yos in FY14, expanding to 3yos in FY15, etc). This is paid to the breeder(s) even if the horse has subsequently been sold.

· The equivalent of 10% of first prizemoney for all 2yo, 3yo and 4yo Group 1 wins in Australia as an additional Cash Bonus to the Nominator. (This is the first year of the Nominators Bonus and applies only to 2yos in FY14, expanding to 3yos in FY15, etc). This is paid to the breeder(s) even if the horse has subsequently been sold.

· The Breeders Challenge Major Race Series for 2yos, 3yos and 4yos (both sexes) with finals worth $125,000 each for 2yo and 3yos and $100,000 each for 4yos.

· The introduction of a Breeders Challenge Trotters Series with Finals worth $30,000 each. (This is the first year of the Trotters Series and applies only to 2yos in FY14, expanding to 3yos in FY15, etc).

· The Breeders Challenge Blue Series for 2yos and 3yos (both sexes) which is restricted to 100% NSW bred horses with Finals worth $50,000 each.

· The Breeders Challenge Regional Finals for 2yos, 3yos and 4yo (both sexes) worth $20,000 each.

· $500 Breeders Challenge Blue Incentive Certificates to offset the cost of a service fee of a NSW based stallion (conditions apply).

In another exiting development for the Breeders Challenge, HRNSW will shortly announce a new major sponsor for the series.
